Tomas now a depression but Jamaica remains on hurricane watch

Stabroek News - Guyana: "Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 55 km/h (35 mph), with higher gusts. However, Tomas is expected to strengthening during the next 48 hours.
The Meteorological Service maintains that while Tomas has further weakened over the past 6 hours, there has been little change to the forecast track and hurricane-force winds are still expected to re-develop as the system changes direction. With this in mind, outer bands should begin to affect southern and north-eastern parishes of Jamaica within 24 hours, while Tomas is expected to be closest to the island on Friday morning."
